Three's Company (1977)

7 mistakes in season 5

In Like Larry - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: Larry gives Cindy and Janet gifts to thank them for letting him live with them, so Janet gives him a kiss. However, three seasons later in the episode "Friends and Lovers," Janet kisses Larry at her wedding to which Larry says "Janet, that's the first time you've ever kissed me."

The Not-So-Great Imposter - S5-E9

Revealing mistake: In Angelino's kitchen, when Mr. Angelino comes in and mentions steaks for eight people are needed, look behind him at the door's window. Janet is briefly seen watching (as if waiting for her cue to enter), then quickly ducks out of sight. A second later, she's seen again while Angelino asks Felipe to help him in the freezer. She then runs in the door with Furley as if they first arrived at that moment.

Night of the Ropers - S5-E18

Character mistake: Jack tells Mr. Roper (while at the Regal Beagle) that the women in the Beagle are "fantastic." Roper gives Jack a strange look (about his acting straight instead of gay, which he always thought Jack was). Jack then corrects his sentence (using gay personality and gestures). Roper is no longer the landlord of Jack's building so Jack didn't need to correct himself in front of him or care if Roper still thought he was gay.

Suggested correction: Just because Roper isn't the landlord any more, he would still keep up the lie, even if he thought he wouldn't get in trouble. Jack simply felt it was easier to keep pretending to be gay to avoid telling the truth (in fact several of the antics in the show would have been avoid if Jack just told the truth after some mix up or confusion, but it was his nature to keep up the lies). Even so, Jack may still feel he could get in trouble somehow if he told the truth.

And Baby Makes Four - S5-E17

Plot hole: To avoid conversing with Cindy about Cindy's alleged pregnancy, Janet picks up an ashtray off the table and claims it's filthy and runs with it into the kitchen. None of the roommates were known to have smoked and no ashtray was seen (in the apartment) in any other episode. What was the point of an ashtray all of a sudden?

Suggested correction: While it might not have been seen previously, it doesn't mean they didn't have one. At that time many non-smokers had ashtrays in their homes (my grandparents did and often used it to hold change or keys). However, they may have had an occasion to have it out for something that we never saw, since we don't see every moment of their lives.

Double Trouble - S5-E19

Continuity mistake: When Furley enters the apartment at the start of the party, the outside weather is crystal clear. Less than 2 minutes later, Furley tells "Austin" the fog is very heavy and the airport is closed down. Then upon opening the front door, tons of thick fog is all over outside. While fog can roll in very quickly, how could Furley even bring up the fog in the first place when it was not there at all when he walked in?
